the show for let's say more than just the last six months, would you know i used to have michael johnson, the ceo much herbalife on pretty often. there have been questions, accusations about the way herbalife makes its money. questions about where the company's product, it's nutritional supplements, actually end up. is it a multilevel marketing corporation? a distribution business where people are paid to get more distributors and not to sell the product to individuals? a scheme so to speak? or is it up and up seller of delicious, potentially weight reducing supplements, using a nonretail method of distribution, that is, individuals try to sell the product one-on-one or in a club like setting. i haven't been featuring them, the fun mentals of company are a side show to a much bigger battle, a battle between hedge funds. we've got one saying the company is basically a fpyramid scheme, no business being in business. and another hedge fund manager says it's a legitimate business, and the stock is darn cheap. the bashing hedge fund manager has waged a war using our air and everyone else's an

not seeing it. generally johnson controls came out and said we continue to have confidence in our full year guidance, even though they said at the first half of the year they won't make as much as last year. there's back end assumptions in some of these companies. but the main earnings themes from these four companies, still on cost reduction. that's what they'll be able to control. the ceo said he's increasingly confident he can meet or exceed financial expectations. i'm still looking for top line growth in these companies. big moves in the asian companies overnight. did you see japan's up there. japan, best day in 22 months, folks. china gdp, better. suncoke open for trading. i mentioned that. down 2% right here at $18.57. japan, again, biggest gains in 22 months. investments there on fire. all the etfs there are getting very large inflows in the last couple of weeks. speaking of inflows, did you see stock mutual funds? inflows for a second week in a row. this is according to lippert here. stock, mutual funds, most since april of 2000. i got excited last week, i'm really interested now, b

congressman dan johnson. good to have you with me this saturday. >> thank you for having me. >> the republican plan is coupled with a no budget, no-pay provision aimed at forcing the senate to pass the budget before an april deadline. if no budget is passed, members of congress, including yourself, don't get paid. what do you think about that proposal? >> well, you know, we have an issue with republicans who can't even control the members in their own caucus thinking that they can control proceedings in the senate and also the president enforced those to do what they want to have done and so they are trying to postpone the day of reckoning basically, for two months and i don't think the scheme is going work. >> so you don't support any part of that proposal? >> well, i mean, if we have a clean debt ceiling bill that comes forward and it's only for three months, that's something that i certainly would consider, but to tie a rise in the debt ceiling to decreasing spending on programs that benefit the middle class, i think it's the republicans' ultimate objective and i certainly do not support th

is it that they tend to go sour. >> lyndon johnson didn't even make it to the second term. he had to resign because of vietnam. ever since roosevelt and the amendment that limited his terms, presidents tend to run out of steam and maybe even get tripped up by scandal in these second terms. i think it's kind of a natural reaction to the fact that power is moving on beyond these presidents because, in fact, they are lame ducks. the obama white house has studied this very, very closely. they know the perils of the second term. they think they can avoid the worst pitfalls. first of all, they are saying there's no scandals on the horizon, but they say they can avoid the worst by having a focused agenda and moving fast. >> we'll see if they can. george, thank you very much. george will have a special inauguration edition of "this week" this morning. white house senior adviser david plouffe is on the show plus a special guest, eva longoria. >> ah, stay with abc news and "gma" for continuing coverage of inauguration 2013. we'll be live tomorrow beginning at 7:00 a.m. with george and josh elliott co-anchori
